Pee Wee's Puppets at MoMA

Best thing about Century of the Child: Growing by Design, 1900-2000 at MoMA ?

IMHO... Pee Wee's Puppets...

Here's the interactive and wonderful  Century of the Child Exhibition Site

From their press release:

MoMA’s ambitious survey of 20th century design for children is the first large-scale overview of the modernist preoccupation with children and childhood as a paradigm for progressive design thinking. The exhibition will bring together areas underrepresented in design history and often considered separately, including school architecture, clothing, playgrounds, toys and games, children’s hospitals and safety equipment, nurseries, furniture, and books...

 But for this blogger? Most thrilling?.... See above...

Here's the New York Times review of MoMA's Century of the Child.
